    Congratulations! I have six more weeks to go and counting

    Keep up the wonderful work..........it does pay off!
    I may go slow but at least I get A's in the prerequisites on the first try! Next spring will be my time to apply to nursing school
    You are doing very well considering all the other classes that you are taking!

    Yay! I did my first Gram Stain friday in lab. I was happy my professpr saved mine to use as an example. I wasnt for sure how well I would like this class. However it has turned out to be most interesting. Its actually been somewhat fun hmp lets not get started on dimensional analysis of pharmacodynamics lol. Since Im new here I might wanna give up some info eh. I am a 25 years old mother of a 2 year old son. I have been a LPN for the past 6 years ( this september) Worked the ER for a few and for WV State of Corrections, I ended up with pre eclampsia during my pregnancy and quit the er. I have been with the State of Corrections now for a little over 4 years. I am currently going to UC ( University of Charleston ) for the one year transistion program to RN.

    Somebody tell me everything's going to be all right. :uhoh21:

    I got my latest micro test back today and... scored an 88. So far, my class average is 85.

    I came into this class feeling like I really needed an "A" so that I wouldn't further drag down my cumulative 3.7 gpa. If my gpa slides downwards to a 3.5, am I still going to get into nursing school??

    Sigh.

    I'm sorry to hear you aren't doing as well as you'd like. Have you talked to your instructor for advice?

    About getting into nursing school, it really would depend on how competitive it is where you are.

    Thanks for the sympathy.

    Well, after my little pity party, I projected my potential final grade, if I start doing slightly better on the quizzes and continue to do slightly better (i.e.: two extra points per test) on the tests, and I discover I can still make an A or at least an A- for the course.

    So, I guess the moral is: study. Study some more. Study again.

    I've got my third micro exam on tuesday also, so we're sort of in the same studying-boat for the weekend. good luck! I know I need it. It's impossible to study when your mother is blasting music.

    haha, she'll be 50 in May! Thank god she isn't blasting disco or I would seriously jump out the window. No, instead, I get to listen to Faith Hill's Firefly cd OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER until my ears bleed while my drunk mother replays the same song over and becomes emotional and all menopausal! lol sorry, but this wouldn't bother me so much if it didn't happen ALL THE TIME. I told her I am throwing my copy of that cd away because I cannot stand it anymore from hearing it on repeat.

    Well, I start Micro on Tuesday. I'll be using Tortora's "Microbiology: An Introduction." I've flipped through it some and it actually looks interesting.
